    not my best of the customs that ive done, the paint came out kind of messy and i wasnt able to do all of the little details, still pretty new at painting. what i did was take the spring out of dreadwings gun and super glued it into place. then i gutted prime megatrons cannon and took a gear out of it. i widened the hole in the gear to fit over top of the 5mm port on dreadwings gun and glued it there for a handle, then i painted it. he is holding onto it by the gear with his right hand and the hinge on the underside of the gun with his left. let me know what yall think and any pointers are always appreciated.



    Edit: added a photo of a revision of this mod that I am doing. Hacked up the sword and attached the blade to the top of the gun, using the sword handle as a secondary handle, need to get some more glue as i ran out while doing this but once i have this finished and painted up some more i will post some new pics

    2nd Edit: Gun is now pretty much finished, unfortunately it doesnt hold as well in his hands currently as it did in the first version but im looking into a way to make it more stable

    yea? i would have loved to get the fakebusker cannon from shapeways but i just got citorias star saber so im broke and had to make due with what i had :p  honestly though, size wise its not too bad, all its missing is the blade above the barrel but i can live with that.

    nice work, the sword on top is definitely the way to go, that looks really good.

    thanks, the sword is glued to the gun, i cut the handle off and that is what the right hand is holding, i glued the handle to the gun facing up
